Informational meeting slated on school-bus parking lot

November 15, 2006|by ERIN CUNNINGHAM

WILLIAMSPORT - A proposed school bus parking lot in Williamsport will be the topic of an informational meeting later this month.

Several months ago, Washington County Public Schools began to fence in an existing parking lot across from Williamsport Elementary School to use as a school bus parking lot. That plan was met with some negative response from the Williamsport community.

The school system sent town officials a letter notifying them of the planned meeting, which will be Nov. 28 at 6:30 p.m. in the Williamsport Elementary School cafeteria

"After several community member inquiries into the project, (school system) staff recognized that we had failed to effectively communicate ... to the Williamsport community," the letter stated.

The town's lawyer said that the meeting can be informational only, and that before the school system could proceed with the bus lot it would need to receive zoning approval from the town.
